March Madness 2017: Tyler Dorsey bails out OR with game-winner

The Wolverines advance to the Midwest Regional at Sprint Center on Thursday in Kansas City against No. 3 seed OR, which survived for a 75-72 win over Rhode Island on Sunday night. From that point on, the Ducks outscored Rhode Island 15-6 to stave off elimination. Their Rams' shots were falling; most of the Ducks' were not. The Ducks came out more aggressive but were unable to cut into Rhode Island's lead for most of the second half.

One would think OR would be ahead after winning the first-half rebounding battle 18-13, but Rhode Island took a 46-38 advantage into the half.

In transition, MI has allowed opponents to score 39.1 percent of the time in the tournament, an improvement over their regular-season performance (46.3 percent) and a potential stumbling block for OR, who has scored nearly two-thirds of the time in transition (63.6 percent) against their first two opponents. Rhode Island now averages 73.7 points per game on offense while the defense gives up just 65.1 points per game.

This pace kept up for the first 11 minutes of the second half, with the Rams forcing turnovers and Robinson and Dorsey continuing to duel. Brooks tops in steals with 1.2 per game. Sure, the Ducks have Dillon Brooks, the Pac-12 player of the year, and Jordan Bell, the Pac-12 defensive player of the year. At 4:51 Brooks canned a 3-pointer giving the Ducks a 68-66 lead but the drama wasn't over yet. URI tied the game on an E.J. Matthews jumper. URI took advantage of the slip in the OR momentum to grab so big Mo its own.

With 38 seconds left and the game tied at 72, Dorsey stepped into a contested three at the top of the key to put OR up 75-72. Dorsey hit his final 3-point shot with 40 second left in the contest which would make the final score, 75-72. He is averaging two points and one rebound with 17 assists in 24 games. He scored 13 of Oregon's final 23 points, stepping up in place of a mostly cold-shooting Brooks, who finished 7-of-20 from the floor. The Rams shot 50.8 percent for the game on 30-of-59 shooting including canning six three-pointers but only shot eight free throws, six of which were good.

OR now faces MI on Thursday in Kansas City in the Sweet 16.
